Badass coats with big brass buttons may be my favourite thing about Steampunk. This reminds me: I need to wear my purple brocade coat more often.
Although I know the RPG addicted science nerds in my renn faire society guild will ride my arse hard for COS play tomfoolery with something like this... I can't help it. I love this! Since I keep finding my way to steampunk stuff in my search for costume inspiration, perhaps it's fate? :)
